Hot Tub Time Machine
R 2010 | 101 mins | Comedy
Hot Tub Time Machine follows a group of best friends who've become bored with their adult lives: Adam (John Cusack) has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou (Rob Corddry) is a party guy who can't find the party; Nick's (Craig Robinson) wife controls his every move; and video game-obsessed Jacob (Clark Duke) wont leave his basement. After a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads pounding, in the year of 1986. This is their chance to kick some past and change their future- one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself with the ladies, one will find his mojo, and one will make sure he still exists!

Top 10 Fun Facts
- John Cusack explained in an interview that he based his decision to do the movie based almost entirely on the title. In related news, look for Cusack in the upcoming features Boatloads of Money and Oscar Bait.
- No DeLorean necessary: Crispin Glover appears as the same character in present day and in the past, just like he did as George McFly in Back to the Future.
- In addition to Crispin Glover and John Cusack, the movie featured other '80s icons including Fletch and National Lampoon's Vacation star Chevy Chase, rock band Poison, and the guy who played big bully Johnny in The Karate Kid.
- Cusack reenacts a classic '80s moment from Sixteen Candles when he’s reacquainted with Lizzy Caplan - a decidedly happy ending for a guy stuck playing one of the freshman geeks in that movie.
- Another '80s flick shout out: while on the ski slopes, someone shouts at Cusack "I want my two dollars." That's a reference to the paperboy chasing down two bucks from Cusack's character in Better Off Dead.
- If you're looking to recreate your own Winterfest '86, may we suggest checking out the Fernie Alpine Resort in British Columbia - where much of the movie was filmed.
- Lou’s ski pants switch from zipped to unzipped while arguing in the hotel room (or maybe Rob Corddry is just lightning fast).
- When the gang travels back to the '80s and John Cusack discovers his suitcase is stuffed with drugs, Clark Duke asks "Who are you, Hunter S. Thompson?" In real life, Cusack and Thompson were close friends (see also: Ed Helms and the tiger in The Hangover).
- Hot Tub Half Nelson: co-stars Rob Corddry and Clark Duke served as guest hosts on WWE Raw to promote the film. Miraculously, neither of them was injured.
- The movie was shipped to theaters using the code name "Bulldogs." We think they should have gone with the name of Craig Robinson's doggie day spa in the film, "'Sup Dawg."
